Manley took 20 years to find the perfect spot for a dream getaway and has turned it into a veritable playground. Reports the magazine:
The place is part high-end dude ranch, part hunting and fishing preserve, and part roll-back-the-decades play camp for grown-ups, with surprise touches like a bowling alley and paintball. (“You put a paintball gun in a 40-year-old man’s hand,” notes Manley, “and he becomes a teenager.”)
And it's "working." So far, Manley's ranch has attracted the likes of LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood and Vince Vaughn.
How much for a night? A room in the lodge will run you $1,900 (fully inclusive). A cabin can get to $2,600 and a log home as much as $7,000 a night.
Manley purchased the property for $25 million and says it costs $1 million a year to run. But he's not done working on it. He tells Forbes: “There will always be something, and I won’t get the money back in my lifetime, anyway. I have a diamond I’m gonna polish.”
